Drilling Firm Sues Town Over Oil, Gas Waste Dumping Ban

The Greenfield (IN) Daily Reporter reports that “a gas and oil drilling company is suing a western Pennsylvania township, claiming that an ordinance passed to ban the disposal of drilling byproducts like fracking fluids and briny water is illegal and trumped by state and federal law.”

“Officials in Grant Township, Indiana County, have yet to see the lawsuit filed late Friday by the Pennsylvania General Energy Company, of Warren.”
